Craig is without doubt the most innovative and creative mentor/coach I have ever worked with. Craig is always the Pro with all the attributes I value but none more important than integrity. I have and will use Craig again and strongly promote him to all that are looking for the type of services he offers.
Joel Petersen Vice President of Sales & Marketing
Craig was an integral part of leading my sales team's to success! His hands on approach to training and providing a "real world" perspective really differentiated him from just being a trainer. He has a unique way of gaining respect and delivering the message because he has been a Sales Leader and is passionate about helping others become successful. Craig always took the time to align his goals with mine and often took on the role of my trusted adviser. He is one of those truly passionate people.
Bill Frohriep, Jr. Area Vice President
There are many sales managers in business but very few true sales leaders. Craig personifies the qualities of a sales leader. “Sales leaders are concerned about the people they lead-the sales results will take care of themselves”. Craig continually exemplified this trait to drive sales results throughout our organization while making us better salespeople. He always understood and pushed us to achieve an appropriate “work-life” balance but held us accountable to achieve our goals. It was a pleasure to have Craig lead our sales organization.

Craig, is a driven sales executive, you never had to worry about a dedicated work ethic. Craig was born with it.
Jeff Robertson Chief Executive Officer
Craig is one of the most knowledgeable experts in sales methodology and processes I have ever met. He really knows his stuff and custom tailors his solution to the enterprise's needs and sophistication...he can be involved a lot or a little and is always respectful of the companies people and culture.
I recently came to Craig as I was in need in a more structured way to hire employees as well as create a sales process. My needs were fairly simple. Craig took me thru both processes step by step conducting various meetings and conference calls until both processes were to my satisfaction. He made the experience very simple and was efficient in his follow-up and exceeding my expectations. I would without reservation highly recommend Craig's services to any business looking for more structure in their sales and hiring processes.

Filter Services Inc.
Craig Lowder recently completed a Sales Process Mapping project for us at FSI. He quickly understood our current practices, worked with our sales staff to document them, and with his knowledge and expertise in Sales Mapping, he coached our staff about best practices and the value of following a structured process. He was able to help the staff understand ways to more effectively perform activities to accomplish goals. Even team members with years of experience were excited by Craig's ideas.
Craig educated our staff and management, getting the best from everyone in terms participation and recognizing that there are better ways to do their jobs. He also evaluated and made changes in the duties of sales and sales support positions, which will significantly improve work flow and our ability to respond to customers. Craig's analyses and recommendations have placed the right people at every step of the sales process, allowing each to utilize his or her strengths everyday. Finally, he provided simple, straight forward metrics to measure the success our processes and staff.
Brian Ashcraft Sales Manager
We recently engaged Craig to create sales processes, provide performance evaluation tools and assist with the implementation of a CRM software to monitor the sales cycle. Craig was very detailed orientated and delivered a program we can tailor to benefit the growth of our company. If you are in need of an outside sales professional to review or create a sales program, I would recommend Craig for the job! Well done and executed on time!
Bill Downey President & CEO
As a mentor, Craig has provided me with the ability to help take my sales team to the next level. Craig was able to dissect our current processes, identify where we were lacking structure and discipline, and then provide us with the necessary tools to improve upon, and in some cases, construct a new process from scratch.
As a company that had never utilized a CRM before, Craig's development of strategies and pipeline management made the installation of SalesForce.com a very smooth transition.
I would recommend Craig's services to anyone looking to add a CRM, improve upon their sales processes, staff, or simply trying to improve upon themselves as a Sales Manager.
Dave Kjederquist National Sales Manager
